Good luck, mate.

- Yeah.

Come on in.

- Hi. How are you?

- Whoa, whoa, whoa. Do you know Kylie?

Right here. Come on, buddy.

Hey. I missed the bus.

Not till tomorrow. Around midday.

I don't think you're gonna find it in there.

You know, whatever it is you're looking for.

Yeah, true.

But it's not for me, it's for my friend.

F***ing thing has been following me

around all day.


- Hey, there she is.

You good?

- Take care.

Take it easy.

You wanna get a drink?

Pretty sure it's gonna be more fun

than sitting here all night.

Yeah, I'd love to, but I've got

to find somewhere to stay.

- I can help you with that.

- Yeah?

Come on. I need you.

You'd be helping me out.

- Okay.

- Good. Fantastic.

Breakfast time.

Come on, man, let's go. Come on.

We got a long drive.

Sh*t, those girls crack me up, man.

They're wild.

Shame we had to leave so quick.

She's gonna miss you.

I would have said goodbye,

if she would have woken up.

- You got a girlfriend?

- No.

No, it's just that I was meant to be

in Byron yesterday,

'cause I've got some friends waiting for me.

- Where are you headed after Byron?

- Don't know.

Just get up there

and then see what happens.

- That sounds good.

- Yeah.

Thanks for the lift. I should

help you pay for some petrol.

What are you doing? Don't worry about it.

I'm going further than you, anyway.

Besides, it's good to have

a little company during the trip.

No, it's fair.

Are these Polaroids

of everywhere you've been?

You've been to a lot of places.

Kind of all over, yeah.

There's a pen in there. Just write

your name and whatever else you'd like.

Bit of an expensive way of

taking pictures, isn't it?

Don't forget the date.

Her name was Lena, by the way.

In case you don't remember.

- You up for some breakfast?

- Sure. Yeah, good idea.

Good. I'm so hungry I could eat my own ass.

We'll go halves.

$12, please.

How much for half a sausage?

Don't worry, I'll get it.

- Thanks.

- Thanks.

- Is that good?

- Yeah, thank you, thank you.

Yeah. Back in a tick.

Come on! Don't puss out on me now, boy!

Oh, it's freezing, man.

Who's Sophie?


I forgot to say, you got a...

You got a message on your phone.

- On... On me phone?

- Yeah, I forgot to say.

You were in the bathroom, I think.

It went off, I thought...

I don't know, I thought it might have been

the girls, so I just had a quick peek.


No, it's okay.

So, is Sophie the reason you wanted

to get out so quick this morning?

I drank too much, mate. Too much.

She's not here, is she?

She's not in Byron, is she?

- Yeah.

- F***.

You gotta be kidding me.

So how long you been going out with her?

- Couple of years.

- Yeah?

We met at college. Not on the first day

or anything corny like that.

- Second.

- Third.

How come she's out here?


She only left college this year,

and she could get a cheap ticket

if she came earlier. Plus, I had to

finish some sh*t job I was in, so...

- Right, right, right.

- Plan is to head up to Katherine's Gorge.

Do you know it? See what happens.

You should have told me.

Instead of carrying that sh*t.

I was beginning to think you'd gotten

bored of the obnoxious American already.


- You tool.

- Come on. Human race.

We make mistakes.

Don't beat yourself up about it.

I'm on your side. Let's go.

So, listen, I really want to say thanks.

Can I settle up for any more fuel

or anything?

Don't worry about that.

You did more than enough of that.

I should be thanking you.

So, where are we meeting her?

Looks like everyone's been having fun.
